I’m Mia Caven, sixteen years young and a music and English student. My passions for both these subjects have been strong since I was able to talk, read, write and sing. This song, Snow, was my first song, of many, that I chose to release. The meaning behind Snow is my attempt in expressing the feelings of being hurt or heartbroken by a person you can only describe as cold. I write songs and make music as a way to reach out to those going through the same stuff, and just want to dance it out their system!
Currently in 2019, “It’s A Pity EP Vol. 1” is his latest release that reached a total of 2000+ plays on it’s 10th day after release, making it RegMaster’s most prominent project to date.
RegMaster associates his current success with the many hardships that he has had in his pursuit for independence in the production of his music as he owns all the equipment used to record his music. This makes his releases consistent and a true reflection of the type of music he intends to put out. There shall be many more releases in the future as RegMaster aims to explore many avenues in his music.

We as women are natural beings, capable of connecting to and realizing the earth in a way that is special and only for us. Not delicate, to be groomed and manicured, but that we are not- we are volcanos erupting and wind, swaying trees and still water, plants that bloom and the ones that don't. Oftentimes, women and the earth have a similar experience. We know what it is to be put on a hierarchal scale, to be told we are not as important as men, to be seen as the opposite of them. We are referred to as "vixen," "bitch," and "chicks," and maybe we are as chaotic, untamed, wild, unpredictable, and hard to control as everyone says we are and maybe that isn't a bad thing.
In my photo series, I examine the physical similarities between feminine products and body (specifically areas with body hair) within the forms of flowers, petals, and leaves.
When I took these photographs I wanted to show the struggle of standing out in this world when there are so many people with talent and brains. I chose a white background and white clothes for my models so they could either blend in or stand out. This miniseries was message for how hard it is to stand out as a creator and as a person in this world.
I'm a 28 year old graphic designer 9-5 and photographer after hours. I am born and bred in Cape Town and grew up in Ottery. I enjoy being outdoors, going to events, music gigs etc.meeting new people and mingling with other creatives that I could possibly collaborate with or even just capture, I especially like shooting on disposable cameras. It makes it more exciting for me.
I'm very nostalgic in the way I dress and the music I listen to so I'm inspired a lot by the 90's music era and lifestyle, this has influenced the way I shoot and capture my subjects.
My curating coloured project was inspired by the people that I'm constantly surrounded by and who motivate me to pursue my own creative ambitions.
A lot of people tend to look abroad for inspiration, in international blogs or magazines but I wanted to show that there are these beautiful scenes and people right in front of us in Cape Town.
The purpose of my project was to shed some light on what isn't always seen. The coloured community isn't always shown in a positive light and I wanted to represent it in a different light.
So people I featured in this project are all friends of mine and belong to this creative community that I spend a lot of my time with. I tried to capture an element of their cool personalities, styles and attitudes in the photographs.
